Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $975 helped to buy shoes, sandals, and slippers.


Raul's story

Raul is an industrious bachelor who is engaged in selling slippers in his community. Because of the poor standard of living he had before, he works hard. He doesn’t want to fall back into poorer living. He is 42 years old and wishes for a good life and a brighter future.

Therefore, he is asking for a loan of an amount of PHP 40,000 to buy shoes, sandals and slippers as additional goods to sell. He hopes this will lead to a boom in his income and will allow his business to prosper and his living standards as well.
